Hotel B is located about 40 minutes (average travel time) from the international airport. It's located in restored Belle Epoque mansion, one block from the sea and the Dedalo artists collective, and within walking distance of several good cafes and restaurants. The hotel has the feeling of both a home and a private museum; contemporary and traditional art and furnishings are placed throughout the structure.
Hotel B is the opposite of the large, industrial, business hotels of San Isidro and Miraflores. The restaurant is inviting and intimate. Tea is served in the library each afternoon. No nickel-and-diming here. Water, minibar, afternoon tea, and breakfast are all included. The service was warm and attentive. The bell desk was prompt.
Great details in the rooms--a classic typewriter on the desk, original floors, high end bath fixtures. The do-not-disturb door hanger is a black necktie, which you wrap around the doorknob.
We stayed with our family (four children, ages 9, 7, 3, and 10 months). We didn't know what to expect, and didn't want to make other guests uncomfortable. We took an us with two suites, an Apocento and an Atelier on the second floor. They were connected by a hallway, and separated from the second-floor sitting room and other guest rooms by common door. It was like having a private wing.
Check in is 24-hour, as many of the guests seem to arrive on midnight flights from abroad. Official check in time is 3PM, with check out at noon. Room service is 24-hour, which was very helpful when arriving with children after a busy day of seeing Lima.
Thank you Hotel B for a great stay.
